As a musician, composer, ardent Star Wars fan, and creator of the musical parody, Star Wars Musical, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Carrie Fisher. But mixed with sadness, it's a joy to see the tributes and old clips of Carrie over the years being shared, and I was surprised to find out she's actually quite the singer! Here are examples of her singing over the years.
Carrie singing in character as Princess Leia during the Star Wars Holiday Special. Starting around (1:13).
Appearing around (1:10), Carrie sings in this a cappella medley of Star Wars themes with Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and other Force Awakens cast members.
